Question upholstery fixes

Hi folks,

Had my drive for around 6 months now, it's been fun and still is, but not to make it more fun by starting to fine tune this great machine!

I'm looking to see if there is anything I can do to fix interior flaky issues you see in the images.

Seems like the solution is this paint: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mercedes-...YAAOSwyQtV0HlK

I just did mine - get your data card, order your paint off ebay, and go for it. Only advice I can give - clean it really well, I can see a bit of color difference on the old Vs. the new - but for 25 bucks my interior looks waaaaaaaay better. You can tape off most of it and use soap and water. Took two evenings and about 8 beers to complete! good luck!

If your charcoal seats have white crack scratches especially the bolsters turning white, etc. you'll find Color Bond LVP Leather, Vinyl and Plastic Refinisher blends in perfectly and lasts a long time. Only thing I don't know is how well it might work over oily leather treatments, but can say on dried out leather it refinishes nicely and is dry instantly.

Question

OK, so I have the data card. Which 'SA code' should I be looking at for the interior paint?

I've got the answer - the seller of the paint helped me out.
